January 30th, 2019

How crazy is it that the idea of body image has shifted tremendously throughout the years? But, what even is this idea of body image?

Girls and Weight Training?

A lot of times, there is a stigma placed on women who lift weights– associating them with ‘manly’ characteristics. This misconception that women should not lift weights and put on muscle mass is still largely existent today and is completely wrong. There are a lot of long term benefits to doing so, and solely doing […]

Cold Weather Hits Chicago

January 28th, 2019

As many of you may know, Loyola never cancels classes. At least for the 4 years I have been here, not once did any amount of snow or low temperature stop Loyola from holding classes. However, one of the coldest air masses will hit the Midwest this week. The temperature in Chicago is predicted to […]


Starbucks or Dunkin Coffee?

Starbucks or Dunkin Coffee?

January 28th, 2019

  Just writing this makes me so stressed because I ask myself everyday, do I like Starbucks coffee more or Dunkin Donuts? First off, what do I even order to make that judgement, right? Well, I am basing this off of pure black coffee y’all. Before I get into which one is ‘better’, lets explain […]

Such a ‘Bler: My First Playwriting Assignment

Such a ‘Bler: Theology 107 with an Agnostic Atheist

January 24th, 2019

I was born and raised in Vietnam. A large part of our country’s population is Buddhist. However, though the majority of the rest do follow the religion’s practices, they are in fact not Buddhist. This was the case for my family. Around sophomore year of high school, I deemed myself as an Agnostic Atheist. So […]
